Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Terms are arranged in order of increasing absolute value (if equal, the negative number comes first).

(11 + 3*n - 9*n^2)^3 + (11 + 3*(n + 1) - 9*(n + 1)^2)^3 + 2*(3*n + 1)^6 = 1458, the numbers of the form (3*n + 1)^2 are terms of the sequence.

(11 - 3*n - 9*n^2)^3 + (11 - 3*(n + 1) - 9*(n + 1)^2)^3 + 2*(3*n + 2)^6 = 1458, the numbers of the form (3*n + 2)^2 are also terms of the sequence.

Thus, A001651(n)^2 are terms of the sequence. There is an infinity of nontrivial solutions to the equation.

EXAMPLE

5^3 + 11^3 + 2 * 1^3 = 1458, 1 is a term.

(-1)^3 + (11)^3 + 2 * (4)^3 = 1458, 4 is a term.
